Published by ACT Government Education, the School Libraries: The Heart of 21st Century Learning report discusses the importance of school libraries and teacher librarians.

"Thriving school libraries led by qualified teacher librarians develop 21st century citizens who can locate, evaluate and use information effectively. International and domestic data abounds which confirms that a qualified teacher librarian improves student learning outcomes (including higher NAPLAN scores) regardless of students’ socioeconomic status. When teaching and learning is transformed by the digital revolution, teacher librarians enhance digital and information literacy, resource the curriculum and help students become critical, creative and collaborative thinkers."
